    Anyone having issues receiving smilies on SMS? My wife uses a Palm Pre and whenever she sends one, they do not convert to smilies on my end.

    Also, anyway to get different ones then the Android ones?

    I don't see any smilies. Unless you are referring to the "text" based smilies? Like a semi-colon and a parantheses for a wink? Those are not image files, but simply a convenience for adding in those text based smilies. It is up to the SMS app on the other end as to how to display text based smilies, or which text based smiles are even supported.

    There are those stupid images to insert into sms messages that some carriers support, but I forget what those things are even called. (I'm not a big texter).

    I think the smilies in the text messaging/sms are pretty hideous .. pukey green and ugly. I would prefer simple plain smileys, a la Yahoo..
